Random Conversation with My Three-Year-Old Son Matthew, 1

Filed under: Humor,Real Life — Patterico @ 12:58 pm

The neighbors recently cut down a tree in their back yard.

Matthew: What happened to the tree?

Me: It’s gone. Gone like the wind.

Matthew: But the wind is not gone.

The boy’s got a point.

  1. Good job, Matthew! Tell Daddy how it is.

    My son will be three in Sept. Smarts uttered in little-boy voices slay me every time.

    Anwyn, do you mean ‘little boys’ with names such as John Edwards, Howard Dean, Ted Kennedy, etc. ?

    Ha, ha, ha.

  3. Sounds like both Matthew and my son Christopher are smarter than those guys. Besides, they don’t have the cute voices. And when my son screams, he has a good reason.

  4. The best part is that Matthew carefully enunciates his words, so that it sounds like: “But – the – wind – is – not – gone . . .”

    Try telling him the tree is gone like a freight train, gone like yesterday, gone like a soldier in the Civil War…

  6. My children call that a “Dadism”. I’m notorious for mixing metaphors. Its gone “with” the wind. Your son can test for the accuracy of this by holding up a $100 bill on a very windy day.
